The Always Wear Your Seatbelt Foundation invites you to join us in raising seatbelt safety awareness at our upcoming 2023 “Lace-Up to Buckle-Up” 5K Walk/Run. This is our annual fundraiser and 100% of the net proceeds go towards our furthering our mission. The AWYS mission is to save lives through raising awareness and educating teens to Always Wear Your Seatbelt, if not for yourself, for Laura & Eddie.
